✹ Recipes ✹

1/2 block firm tofu
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
squeeze of lemon (maybe 1/2 tbsp juice)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

1 cup raw cashews, soaked 4+ hours or boiled
1 small russet potato, peeled and boiled
Add to blender and add just enough water to cover. Blend until smooth.

16 oz mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small white onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup cashew cream sauce (see above)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon onion powder
4 vegan chicken cutlets, or pan-fried tofu steaks
salt and pepper, to taste
parsley, to garnish

Saute onions, mushrooms and garlic over medium high heat in a nonstick skillet with a bit of olive oil until mushrooms have shrunk and everything is starting to brown and slightly stick to the bottom of the pan.

Deglaze pan with white wine (or use extra vegetable broth) and stir, scraping up fond from bottom of pan. Stir in cream sauce and add onion powder. (You can also add some herbs at this time, such as rosemary or thyme, if you like.) Add as much vegetable broth as desired to thin sauce out, depending on preference.

Add vegan chicken cutlets and cover with sauce. Bring sauce to a simmer and reduce heat to low to keep simmering for 15-20 minutes. Serve with pasta and blanched asparagus. (In the video I cook the asparagus in the sauce, but I actually recommend cooking it separately and serving it on the side.)
